Summary

This book offers a theological foundation for engaging with the realities of suffering and dying. Designed particularly for practical theology students and trainee caregivers, it introduces the spiritual and theological issues raised by suffering and dying. The chapters consider:

  • how Christian theology deals with the problem of suffering and how the Bible treats these difficult issues
  • post-biblical interpretations of Jesus’ suffering and the Cross
  • modern instances including ecology, poverty, discrimination and war
  • comparative religious approaches and the depiction in popular culture.

Natalie Weaver relates theology to practical issues of caregiving and provides a ‘toolbox’ for thinking about suffering and death in a creative and supportive way.
